Those particles are probably clumps of yeast or some hop debris and they are floating because the ferment is still going on. Give it more time an the floaties will settle out.

Now you know why we just leave our beers in primary until they're ready. IMO/IME, better to let them go another week or four than bottle/keg it too soon and be pissed off at what you pour to glass.
